The State of Hypocrisy Address

Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, while delivering the republican response to Obama’s State of the Union Address, really irked me when he said the following:

We believe, as our founders did, that “the pursuit of happiness” depends upon individual liberty; and individual liberty requires limited government.

Where was this concept of limited government for individual liberty when same sex couples wanted the right to marry, when gays wanted to serve openly in the military, when it came to a woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body?  By and large the opposition to these issues, and others, comes from republicans, so here is my question to the GOP.  Is the individual liberty referred to in the above quote, individual liberty defined as you (the republican party) see it?  If it is then what Mr. Ryan should have done was to be more specific and said, “We believe, as our founders did, that “the pursuit of happiness” depends upon individual liberty; and individual liberty requires limited government unless you take liberties of which we do not approve.”

Any of our elected officials (you know, the ones sworn to uphold the constitution) who make statements like the one Ryan made, and do not live up to them, should be required to wear a scarlet H on their foreheads.
